This restaurant was formerly a wine bar and cellar. It is managed a team of senior citizens - the waiters, chefs and even the cashier were all over 50. It is located just off the main and major Venice thoroughfare of Strada Nouva, and besides a small canal. The best choice is the catch of the day which ranges from... More

After a slight hiccup when we arrived at the restaurant (I'd booked a table for four over the phone but they thought I'd asked for a table for two), we were eventually accommodated in a corner by the window, with a view of the canal. If you can get a table by the window, it's quite sweet. Waiting staff were... More

Having heard great things about this place from several different sources I was really really excited to get a reservation here for our last night. Having never been to Italy before and having heard so much about the food, I was generally disappointed by the food in Venice. So on reading the reviews of this place, I was set for... More

I had asked our hotel to recommend somewhere for dinner & they sent us a list of 5 places to choose from, I chose this one because it didn't look touristy. I've been to Venice 4 times now & am sick of the eateries that cater to tourists. This place gets full of locals. We went on a Saturday evening,... More

We went to this place following recommendations from our hotel and our travel book (Top 10 of Venice). The starter a simple pasta with truffle shavings was simple but nice, our mains - duck and lamb were very plain and overcooked with minimal sides. I don't want to insult the chef but I'd suspect most people would do a much... More

Adorable little place off the mainpath and the tourist feels. The food was always exceptional, service was on and off, but overall it doesn't really affect the feelings.
